This is a play I wrote and had 60 Ss perform in for our annual class presentation evening for parents. It has a strong social justice message surrounding how children live around the world and reminding us to appreciate what we have.
The play starts in a busy airport terminal which has representatives from each continent arguing over who is the best, tourists chime in and then we are taken on a journey to find out what life is actually like in different parts of the world.
The script is suitable for a cast of around 23 - 53 students with a length of 13 minutes.
This play was inspired by the 'Where Children Sleep' photo essay by James Mollison and was written as part of our geography unit. There are a variety of parts for all levels of student ability, from short lines to monologues.
I received lots of really positive feedback from my colleagues and parents after the students performed the play, highlighting the powerful message that came through.
